The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Special Offer – Get a NEW Fireface UFX Interface

In celebration of their 20th anniversary, RME are giving customers the chance to switch to the Fireface UFX interface by trading in your old audio interface and getting a massive 20% discount on the Fireface UFX. The multi-award winning RME Fireface UFX features everything you need to step your audio processing up a level. For more information on the this special offer please contact e-mail or ring Gear4music.

There's ultra-low latency operation with USB and FireWire, combined with the legendary RME driver stability and maintenance. RME's unique DIGICheck metering and analysis toolbox can also be found. Fireface features nearly identical operation whether you're a Mac or PC user.

The DURec (Direct USB Recording) uses an integrated digital recorder for all inputs and outputs directly to USB memory devices, USB thumb drives or hard drives with up to 2 TB capacity, via the front USB port.

TotalMix FX, the digital hig-end mixer and signal router is included, driven by two powerful DSP with integrated EQ, dynamics and reverb/echo effects up to 192 kHz plus a built-in monitoring control.

Extraordinary playability comes in the form of a bright, multi-functional colour display with full front panel metering for all 60 channels, plus effect bus and complete control of all key features.

The Fireface is RME's flagship, a highly integrated pro audio solution, a full-blown studio packed into a 19" enclosure designed for users who don't want to make compromises in sound, stability and ultra-low latency operation.

The Fireface provides 12 inputs and 12 outputs. When it comes to sound quality, the RME plays in its own league and the UFX is no exception. Combining excellent analog circuitry design with high-grade AD/DA converter chips, all balanced TRS and XLR inputs and outputs guarantee outstanding low noise and distortion values.

Four high-transparency preamps are backed up by four stereo converters with RME's new parallel converter technology. Each channel can individually be switched to 48V phantom power or instrument level. LEDs for signal, clip, TRS operation and activated phantom power give a complete overview on the unit's status.
